    I worked at Caltrans full-time


    Caltrans is such a huge department with offices in locations throughout the station and various definitions. Lots of mobility to jump around if you don't like your current position/location while still maintaining benefits. Great place to learn a little bit of everything.


    Not a very good place if you really want to delve into a particular topic and get the ball moving. very beaurcratic.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Caltrans in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was not very confident during the interview; however, I got through it with God's help. Having good grades helps. They asked me a few questions. The interview lasted less than 15 minutes. It took a little less than two weeks for them to call me to inform me that I got the job. Make sure you pray a lot before the interview. If it's God's will, you will get the job. If it's not His will, then you won't get the job. Being at peace with His will is what gives peace.
